Eischeids Make Large Donation to EVFD

February 25, 2011 by lmorgan · Comments Off 


Ron and Linda Eischeid of Elgin have been selected as winners in the America’s Farmers Grow CommunitiesSM program, which gives farmers the opportunity to win $2,500 for their favorite local nonprofit organizations. The Monsanto Fund sponsors the program, and winning farmers designate a local nonprofit organization to benefit from the donations. The Eischeid’s have designated the Elgin Volunteer Fire Department and Elgin Rescue Squad to receive the donation.

Ron says he is very excited to have been selected as the winner for Antelope County. “I think this program is great, and it is helping our community which is even better. In this day and age it is hard for everyone to make it and donations like this one make it easier,” says Ron.

UENRD Completes Third Irrigated Acre Sign-Up

February 25, 2011 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Created by the Nebraska State legislature in 2009, LB 483 allowed the Upper Elkhorn NRD the opportunity to expand new irrigated acres within a portion of the district.

This portion of the district was preliminarily labeled fully-appropriated in 2008.

Without this legislation and the reversal of the preliminarily fully-appropriated designation by the Department of Natural Resources, no new irrigated acre development would have been allowed after 2008. However, new development is being allowed between 2009-2012.

New Area Code to Affect Local Calling

February 25, 2011 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Beginning on Saturday, Feb. 26, residents of Eastern Nebraska will begin using a new procedure for making local telephone calls.

Those who live in the 402 region will need to dial 402 plus the 7-digit local number when making local calls. If the caller attempts to dial only seven digits, a recording will direct callers to add the area code.

This change is the first step to overlaying a new area code in the 402 region. All current customers will keep their area code and telephone number. The old 402 area code will be used until the numbers are exhausted. At that time, the 531 area code will be assigned where needed in the 402 area code region. The purpose of the ten-digit dialing is to ensure the call is routed to the proper area code. Long distance calls will still require a “1” before the ten-digit phone number.

Residential customers may be affected in several ways. Telephone equipment or computers that have saved phone numbers including dial-up internet connections, speed dial settings, voicemail and life safety systems will need to be re-programmed to dial ten digits. Saved contact lists should also be updated to reflect the new 10-digit dialing procedure.

Businesses should ensure that stationery and online sites include the area code. Business owners should also check phone-based equipment as some automatically dialed calls may require reprogramming to include the new dialing procedure. This may include: fax machines, alarm and security systems, speed dialers, call forwarding settings, voicemail services, and similar functions.

The new dialing procedure does not affect 3 digit numbers including 411 and 911.

“While February 26 marks the beginning of mandatory 10-digit dialing, 402 residents can begin to switch over to 10-digit dialing now. Currently there is a permissive dialing period where either seven-digit or ten-digit local dialing is allowed. For residents or businesses concerned about receiving a new number that has the 531 area code, it is unlikely that residents in small communities will receive a 531 phone number for a long time. Demand for phone numbers is generally smaller in these areas,” said Kathy Tripp, Director of Special Services for Great Plains Communications.
